Video Installations 4.21.03 - 5.4.03
I'll be having three video installations up during the next couple of
weeks. There will be a 2 monitor installation in the windows of the
Zeitgeist Gallery being installed on April 21 and up until May 4.
The other artists in the show are very interesting also -- so a trip
to the gallery during its open hours is most recommended. The opening
for this show is on 4.26 at 3:30 PM.
If you want to combine art with a trip to the country, one of my
pieces will be at the Monson Art's Center from 4.26 to 5.4, with the
opening also at 4.26. The show last year had a lot of fine work.
I'll have a two monitor with sound installation as part of
COLLISIONfive opening reception on Sunday 4.27, from 1 to 8 PM. This
is in the lobby outside the Compton Gallery at MIT. The COLLISIONfive
show includes robotics and computer based art, and is guaranteed to
surprise and stimulate.

Video artist Doctor T (Emile S. Tobenfeld Ph. D) is pleased to
announce 3 upcoming video installations.
Doctor T creates "visual music" or "visual poetry: (whichever
metaphor you prefer), by taking real-world image sources and
combining and treating them in the computer, and sequencing the
images using musical strategies such as theme and variations and
improvisation. His pieces use a small number of thematic images,
which are then computer processed and combined and collaged with
other images to make sequences of moving images -- a "music for the
He will have a piece titled Astro Blue vs. The Zeitgeist Mix in the
window of the Zeitgeist Gallery as part of Digital Collage , which
will be on display from April 21 to May 4. The show in the gallery
will include work by Dave Grant, David Gordon, Daina Krumins, and
This piece uses two looped and phased DVD players, and is part of his
"Video Synchronicities" series, which explores the connections
between multiple images both deliberately and serendipitously
combined. This piece plays minimal mostly abstract images (Astro
Blue) off a video derived from many image sources, mixed with images
of the gallery sign (The Zeitgesit Mix).

Do not be fooled by the small town venue -- this show rocks!
Water Music consists of images of water, collaged using computer
animation techniques, and improvisationally sequenced. The piece is a
musical treatment of some (a tiny fraction) of the textural and
evocative properties of water imagey. It is set to a soundtrack of
electronic music, composed my Michael Robinson, and based on a raga
inspired by the Ganges River,
He will have a piece entitled "Video Synchronicities -- The Bridge
